Sumptuous Recipes For Chocolate Souffles

Aug 17, 2007
This is the stuff from which dreams are made. Why just dream of floating on a chocolate cloud when you can actually eat one? Here's two to try and the taste is just to die!!

Chocolate Souffle
Emeril Lagasse

2 teaspoons butter, room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
8 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
4 large egg whites
3 large egg yolks
1/4 cup Grand Marnier

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Butter 4 individual ramekins. Sprinkle each ramekin with 1 teaspoon sugar. In a large metal bowl, set over a pot of simmering water, melt the chocolate, whisking it occasionally.

Remove the bowl from the heat. In a mixing bowl, whisk the egg whites with 1/4 cup of the sugar until stiff and glossy. Whisk the egg yolks into the chocolate one at a time, add the Grand Marnier, and whisk in the remaining sugar. Fold in the egg whites and blend until smooth.

Pour the chocolate mixture into the prepared ramekins. Place the ramekins on a baking sheet and bake until they are puffed and somewhat firm, about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve with the chocolate sauce and powdered sugar.

Another Fabulous Fun Fluff:

3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped fine
1/2 cup unsweetened Dutch Process cocoa powder
3/4 cup plus 1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup boiling water
2 egg yolks
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
8 egg whites, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
6 dark chocolate kisses or 6 (1/2-ounce) pieces dark chocolate
2 to 3 teaspoons powdered sugar

Position oven rack in the bottom 1/3 of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees F. Spray the inside of 6 (10 ounces) ramekins, or oven-proof baking cups, with non-stick cooking spray and sprinkle with a little sugar to coat evenly.

In a large bowl, place chopped chocolate, cocoa, and 3/4 cup of the sugar.
Whisk in boiling water. When chocolate is completely melted, whisk in egg yolks and vanilla. Then stir in the flour. Set aside.

Combine egg whites with cream of tartar in a medium mixing bowl. Beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually sprinkle in remaining 1/4 cup sugar and beat on high speed until stiff but not dry.

Fold about 1/3 of the chocolate mixture into the egg whites. Fold in the remaining chocolate mixture in 2 additions. Divide batter into prepared ramekins.

Drop 1 chocolate kiss or 1/2 ounce of dark chocolate into the center of each souffle just before baking.

Bake for 10 to12 minutes, or until the top has formed a nice crust and the sides appear cake-like. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Dig in immediately!

Chocolate Ice-Cream:

For about two quarts and a half of cream use a pint and a half of milk, a quart of thin cream, two cupfuls of sugar, two ounces of Walter Baker & Co.'s Premium No. 1 Chocolate, two eggs, and two heaping tablespoonfuls of flour.

Put the milk on to boil in a double-boiler. Put the flour and one cupful of the sugar in a bowl; add the eggs, and beat the mixture until light.

Stir this into the boiling milk, and cook for twenty minutes, stirring often.

Scrape the chocolate, and put it in a small saucepan. Add four tablespoonfuls of sugar (which should be taken from the second cupful) and two tablespoonfuls of hot water. Stir over a hot fire until smooth and glossy. Add this to the cooking mixture.

When the preparation has cooked for twenty minutes, take it from the fire and add the remainder of the sugar and the cream, which should be gradually beaten into the hot mixture. Set away to cool, and when cold, freeze.
